Calling All Citizens: The CitizenM Times Square to Open on March 25
Today, we're getting lucky! Not only can you make a reservation at the uber-swank Shangri-La in London, you can also book a room at the CitizenM Times Square.
We've been eagerly anticipating the stateside debut of the CitizenM hotels so we're extremely pumped to see the hotel is accepting reservations for March 25th.
We found a room for $199 a night on opening night which, to be honest, is a little bit of a buzzkill. It's March and still pretty cold in NYC. We sort of hoped this would be the starting rate in warmer times like May-ish, especially given how small these rooms are.
But no matter, that rate includes free wifi andmovies in all rooms, XL kingsize beds, a power rain shower, Skype phone rates, wall to wall windows and an "ambient room experience with touch screen control for colour, temperature, blinds, television and more."
We strolled by the property last week and saw the new signs that went up on the exterior as well as some interesting lobby art. No word on whether the hotel will do something creative with the Bare Elegance signs that remain on the shuttered strip club next door.
